Who We Are
The Australian Trout Foundation (ATF) is an environmental conservation foundation whose sole mission is to protect, build and promote Australia’s precious and valuable trout fishery.
Working together with Fishing & Water Managers and Trout Fishers
To protect and build the trout fishery, the ATF works closely together with the Victorian Fisheries Authority , Dept. of the Environment Land Water & Planning, Catchment Management Authorities, Land-care Groups, and most importantly, Angling Clubs and Trout Fishers. The ATF is recognized as the representative body for trout fishers in Victoria, and has representation in the following forums:
The Victorian Trout Fisher Reference Group
The Victorian Statewide Recreational Fishing Roundtable Forum
The Victorian Freshwater Fish Habitat & Flows Roundtable Forum
Trout fishers are passionate about the fishery and the environment
It’s a proven fact that trout fishers are passionate about the fishery and the environment in and surrounding our beautiful trout streams and lakes, which is very fortunate because we’ve learned from research and experience that healthy waterways produce healthy fisheries. This is the main reason why so many fishers have volunteered to assist with in-stream and riparian restoration projects, planting trees and removing invasive weeds. There are more than 2,000 committed volunteers covering Victoria’s trout regions and more are most welcome.
